Your ram is all running at the same speed, if you have 2 kits that run at different speed, the faster ram downclocks to match the slower ram. kreepa July 29, 2010 11:23:45 PM its for gaming Can't find your answer ?

One that you desperately need! lol, It's a shame you're running a GTX460 on such an old processor and motherboard Also... you really should look into 64bit windows 7 with your new CPU/mobo combo and since you have 4gb ram After this upgrade... do yourself a favor and get a real monitor :0 I cant even imagine using a low res. 17" with the sweet ass computer you're going to have Can't find your answer ?
